Some info from a good customer who was out fishing yesterday on the Rush in Wisconsin.
“Midge hatches on the Rush this afternoon made for some fantastic winter dry fly fishing. I fished a section of the Rush below a creek from 11 to 2:30 today. I fully expected to be dredging some deeps pools with nymphs but 50 yards upstream from the bridge a prolific midge was happening. The trout were stacked up in a slow moving seam next to the bank. Though plenty of small 8-10 inch fish were biting, the biggest fish were sipping midges inches from the bank. The best results occurred when casting with inches of the opposite bank; I caught several 14″ inch fish and bigger this way. Just a great day on the Rush.”
